Anna Zasiewska

    Leisure Club Manager

    I manage The Ardilaun Leisure Club with a help of a great and supportive team.

    I am passionate about fitness, sport and general wellbeing. I have a formal education from a Physical Education Academy. I have years of experience managing leisure centres and I am also a Swimming, Aquafit and Pilates instructor.

    I believe that physical wellbeing greatly impacts the overall quality of life. I also believe that every little helps and it’s never too late to start your journey of physical improvement.

    Here, at The Ardilaun Leisure Club, we have fantastic facilities, great equipment, and very knowledgeable staff. We are here to support you and offer advice, regardless of your level of fitness. We hope to see you soon!

    Leisure Club Sales & Accounts Manager / Hotel Social Media & Digital Marketing Manager

    I have been part of The Ardilaun team since 2008 and oversee the sales, accounts, marketing, photography and social media of the club. I am also the Social Media & Digital Marketing Manager for the hotel so every day is go, go, go...

    However, the most enjoyable part of my job is meeting the customers, having the chats and insuring they have a happy experience here at the leisure club.

    The biggest motivation for me is seeing people realizing their potential. You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great and we have a wonderful team of fitness instructors here to help you on your way!

    Andrew Farrell

    Supervisor | Gym & Class Instructor | Personal Trainer

    I chose to pursue a career in the fitness industry because I know what it takes to stay fit and active from my years of training, whether it be sports or in the gym. I also get great pleasure from helping other people achieve their goals in the gym. I love exercising and it has so many benefits for me personally, so I would like other people to feel the same. If you need a new gym programme just book in for a Fitness Assessment at reception, I'd be glad to help. I have also been recently promoted to Club Supervisor.

    Leila

    Leisure Club Attendant

    Hi, I'm Leila and I'm super adorable 🙂

    I love attention and I like to be petted (but not too much), I've tried visiting other clubs but there is no where more paw-some than The Ardilaun. My real hoomans are actual members of the club and live close by but there is this crazy cat who works in the office and she calls me her 'baby' (she also thinks I'm a girl, I'm not!) but I kinda roll with it because she gets me the best food (don't tell my hoomans!).

    You'll often find me sitting outside the main door, I'm really just supervising and keeping an eye on all the boys and girls making sure they don't run around the car park, cars are dangerous and you have to be very careful! For fun, I chase the dogs away, even the big ones are scared of me 😉

    Purr-haps I will see you around the club. (only outdoors of course) p.s I like treats (dreamies or whiskas are my favs)
